If you keep doing the same thing, you will get the same results. Sometimes we need to break out of the box that holds us back to freedom in our own thinking!
TIME moves so quickly by us. As I look into the mirror, I see a woman who has aged and still feels like the kid inside. Wishing and hoping things would be different and yet reality of life is here. Our physical bodies change and age is seen upon our faces.
TIME TRAVEL ~
What if we could turn back the hands of time and do things different? What if we make that different choice and it did change our complete path of life? What if it made you someone else and not who you are today in God? I honestly believe I would not change a thing. I might not have what I have or be who I am. In doing things different, it would change everything.
THE TRUE TEST OF TIME ~
Proverbs 12:19 New Living Translation (NLT)
Truthful words stand the test of time,
but lies are soon exposed.
THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX ~
Just because you put things into a box, it doesn't mean you must open it. Sometimes we pack things up for a reason and get rid of it. Inside the out is one thing, but outside the box is freedom of choices. Freedom of life and surrounding yourself with like mined people. People who care greatly and will not let you stop this path of life. A real friend who challenges you to become stronger and not give up. A determination of loving God with all your heart and doing your best to be his example.
Thinking outside the box brings, brings a new way of thinking. It doesn't have to be all packed up inside a box and then suddenly released. It is a walk with God, that is between you and him. Spending time with God opens the box to total freedom. What is freedom anyway?
:the quality or state of being free
Over the years, we will change. Don't beat yourself up over the past or maybe even a moment today. God forgives, forgets and allows us new beginnings for a reason. The ugliest thing in your life, God can take and turn into ministry. I personally know this to be true. It becomes my choice to let go and let God. It is your choice to let go and to let God. A new beginning is powerful and we must see God in that. He turns our past into our nows. Surrendering your plan and your wills, to his.
I find that just saying surrender your will to God's will easy to say, but a little harder to do. We have different personalities and we don't do things the same. I see things one way and you might see them a different way. I totally believe it is where we come from in life and the things that we have experienced. We have experienced things for a reason. I have people tell me how lucky I am and yet they don't know the struggle I often go through in one day. My mind goes back to hurtful thoughts and I had to make decisions to press forward. I do believe I am blessed (Lucky) but I also believe that God helps me daily as I let go of things I can not change.
Freedom comes into our minds as we see ourselves the way God does. Words spoke over us can keep us a box of hurt. But words spoken by God, can bring us freedom in thoughts and then it goes to action. I am free today like a bird. I travel high in the sky with God and know that his plan continues to unfold for my life. Daily we can choose our words and be careful in how we answer people. Treat others with love and kindness is what I do daily. Sometimes I cry, because I don't get treated that way back. Yet, I shouldn't it with a motive of getting back, but giving out. Guard your your heart my friends and move into this new day with grace, mercy and freedom.
My prayers continue for you, your family and friends.
